This series celebrates womanhood and the power of the Goddess in bringing the restorative journey to fruition. Here, in the spirit of Medicine Woman III, the mysterious power is echoed in the strings of Medwyn's guitar compositions and fused with the inspiring harmonies of traditional woodwind instrumentation and invoked percussional excellence. At the journey's end is a new beginning, replicating the cyclical forces of life, nature and abundance; truly the Medicine Woman's legacy for us all.
This is a great CD to start off the day in a positive way and will be on constant rotation whenever you need to feel inspired or uplifted.
The enchanting conclusion to Medwyn Goodall's feminine-themed "Medicine Woman" series, volume three features another set of mesmerizing sonic landscapes that celebrate the power of the Goddess. South American textures are plentiful throughout the recording - most specifically in the form of panflutes and the guitar-like charango. Other sounds include Spanish guitar, piano and keyboard melodies, African percussion and dreamy synthesizer backdrops. Compositionally-speaking, these are some of Goodall's best productions to date, with harmonies that range in mood from tender to joyous and a sense of peacefulness that pervades every aspect of the recording. Medwyn Goodall has done it again - it's almost a shame that this is meant to be a capstone release for the series.
With a fusion of guitar, keyboards, percussion and, traditional South American woodwind instruments, this is a musical exploration reflecting concepts and ideas about the nurturing power of the feminine.
Medicine Woman and Medicine Woman II have been among the best selling new age albums ever. This third part of the trilogy will appeal to fans and newcomers alike.
